CBS News Poll on Katrina

WAS THE RESPONSE TO KATRINA ADEQUATE?

Federal government:
Yes 20%
No 77%

FEMA:
Yes 24%
No 70%

In 1992, after Hurricane Andrew decimated parts of Florida, 41% of voters thought the Federal government performed adequately there. 40% of Floridians that year said the same.

Americans see the response to Katrina as insufficient in part because it was slow: an overwhelming eight in ten say the federal government didn't act fast enough.

DID FEDERAL GOVERNMENT RESPOND AS FAST AS IT COULD? …
Yes 16%
No 80%
